Since 1991, MFEE has raised over $13 million private dollars to empower students, teachers, and the Montclair community, with the overall goal of helping the district provide a high-quality education for all students.

Now, more than ever, a high-quality public education is not only critical for each student’s success, but it is also vital to maintaining a thriving community.  

When you donate to MFEE, you’re investing in Montclair’s future. Our schools nurture our future doctors, business owners, writers, activists, creators, and thinkers. They produce compassionate and interesting neighbors.

They do all of this during a time of increasing needs and decreasing state and federal funding.

This is not a one-size-fits-all district. Learning alongside someone who does not look like you, live near you, or whose family structure may be different than yours prepares you for a global world, but it also requires varied solutions.  

Ensuring that each of our students maximizes her potential and leaves our schools with the confidence and creativity to succeed in a rapidly changing world requires robust resources.

Show how PUBLICLY PROUD you are today with an investment in our schools, our kids, and our community.

“This is exactly what MFEE was created to do,” says MFEE founder Joyce Michaelson. “Educational Excellence grants nurture our teachers’ innovative ideas, which in turn unleash the innovation and creativity of our next generation of leaders. We are so thankful to our donors for making exciting work like this possible.”

"With the shape of education in the fall in question, Montclair’s teachers have come up with innovative ways to teach students.

The three projects had the backing of the Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence. The MFEE provided funding for materials for the media literacy courses and a 360-degree camera to use as part of the Global Citizen Project, as well as for curriculum materials for the teletherapy sessions."
